4th Space and the Faculty of Fine Arts (FOFA) Present Elsewhere: International Field Schools

Join us for an information session and showcase of international fine arts field schools held over the past two summers.

Any student interested in attending a field school or any faculty member interested in starting a field school is invited to this session at 4th Space to listen and talk with faculty and students (undergraduate and graduate) from a variety of departments, who took part in summer field schools in Iceland, Denmark, Mexico, Colombia, and the U.S.

Summer Field Schools allow students to travel, learn and earn credits in another country under the supervision of a FOFA faculty member. More than study trips, these are intensive, place-based studios and carefully structured courses in collaboration with the FOFA and Concordia International. Students can enroll in them through the Faculty as they would any regular course.

Exchanges and field schools bring students into new landscapes, urban fabrics and the lives of others across the globe. Students become translators of experience, interpreters of culture, manipulators of material and ambassadors of the arts — both on site and when they return home. 

How can you participate? Attend in person (note, we can accommodate up to 30 audience members comfortably in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
